Ba'moth-ba'al (Heb. Bamoth'- Ba'al, בִּעִל בָּמוֹתאּ, heights of Baal; Sept. Βαμὼθ Βάαλ v.r. Βαιμὼν Βάαλ, and αἰ στέλαι τοῦ Βάαλ), or, as the margin of our version reads, "the high places of Baal", SEE BAAL, a place given to the tribe of Reuben, and situated on the river Arnon, or in the plain through which that stream flows, east of the Jordan (Jos 13:17; comp. Nu 21:28; Nu 22:41; not Jer 32:35). It is probably the same place elsewhere (Nu 21:19) called simply BAMOTH SEE BAMOTH (q. v ). Knobel (Comment. in loc.) identifies it with the modern Jebel Attarus, a site marked by stone-heaps observed both by Seetzen (2. 342) and Burckhardt (Syria, p. 370); but this is rather the summit of Nebo.
